20 Jan 2020 – GG2LAM KwokKiong Branch
Sat: congratulations to the marriage of grandnephew SuiChang (grandson of 2nd bro) and welcome JiaLing to the family. Missing JenLeng’s 2children in the pix. Have not completed the names to the OrangeGenerationOG and PurpleGenerationPG for the family-tree yet. Above pix credits to professional photographers.
He is the 1st of the PurpleGeneration/PG to be married. Above 1st&last pix credits to JenLeng.
Appreciations to his parents JenMun&SiewKing for getting the family together for this joyous occasion and for raising such a lovely son. Now they can relax and look forward to the next generation – The BrownGeneration/BRG
Thank you for a delicious lunch+gifts@ParkRoyal/Beach Rd. Their wedding day will come and go, but may their love forever grow.
Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow ―
Used to have a few copies of the above book, but, today could not find any when I wanted it. Book cover downloaded. Dinner@Les&Ivy to have some time with Lawrence who will be flying back to KCH tomorrow. Has been a very busy week.
Sun: needed a day to chill before getting ready for the CNY. A good day to watch Season6/13Episodes of Frankie&Grace
Mon: a good week to all – it is going to be another busy week. Errands@PP and an excellent movie – a woman seeking a quiet life in post-World War II British Malaya finds love and a common interest in gardening with a mysterious Japanese man. It is only natural for an author, whose book is being brought to life on the big screen, to feel nervous about the tweaks and changes that must come with any cinematic adaptation.
Will the film stay true to the book’s events? Will it honour its spirit? More so when the book in question is Malaysia’s first novel to be shortlisted for the prestigious Man Booker Prize – The Garden Of Evening Mists. Have not read the book but would highly recommend the movie.
1st reunion&LoHei pot-luck dinner@Pat&David. My contribution – the fruit-tray.
Also a combination for Michael’s 80Bday. Safe trip to Pat&family who will be heading for Malaysia over the CNY. Walked app 2k/30mins back to my 4-walls, been a while since I have walked that late in the evening, but the body really needed that walk after all the over-eating over the week! Pleasant evening for a walk.
